believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h

terrorist groups were behind an attack in libya. gunmen stormed the consulate in the city of benghazi, they killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. officials say the gun men started shooting and throwing bombs. the building went up in flames. the attack continued for more than four hours. government officials described the assault as elaborate and said the fbi and libya are looking into the possibility that terrorist groups were involved. the attack fell on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. marine corps commanders are sending the anti-terrorist unit to the libyan capital and strengthen security around american diplomatic facilities. >>> the members of the security council reaffirmed that such acts are unjustifiable regardless of their motivations. >> german ambassador is the current president of the council and said the council called on all u.n. members. to protect foreign diplomatic missions. and secretary general said in a statement that nothing justifies the brutal violence in benghazi. >>> libyans had staged protests outside a consulate before the attac

on a different topic. it seems that the u.s. ande and libya have different accounts of the attacks in benghazi. there are reports that libyan officials warned the u.s. of the growing extremist threat prior to the attack. they admit they had could not control these militias. that directly counter what is administration officials have said. this is just a reaction to the islamic film. >> what i can tell you is that we have the right information about what we believe was the per siptating cause of the protest and the violence. based on the information that we have had available. there is an ongoing investigation, the f.b.i. is investigating, and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. what we do know about libya is that it's a country that emerged from war and revolution and you have a new government trying to assert its authority as that country makes a transition to democracy and broader representation for all libyans. and broader rights for all libyans. and in that environment there are certainly in this post-war, post-revolution environment, there are vast numbers of weap

benghazi remained calm today. if you look at it, perhaps the libyan government's quick crackdown there on those alleged perpetrators. four individuals were arrested today. there's a manhunt going on that might have had a tamping-down effort. even there in benghazi, the u.s. government is taking no chances. we understand that all u.s. personnel has now been or have been evacuated to tripoli and only emergency staff are kept at the embassy here. here in cairo it's another 24 hours of protests against that made in usa anti-islam film. overnight last night some dramatic scenes near the u.s. embassy which is 400 or 500 yards behind me. protestors seen throwing stones at riot police, charging back. they are firing tear gas to disperse the crowds. this cat and mouse standoff has gone on all day long since dawn. there's not a further breach of the u.s. embassy grounds. that's the good news, but it has remained violent. at least 224 have been treated so far according to the ministry of health. now, all eyes are turned to tomorrow, of course, friday prayers. egyptian president morsi has ca
not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for our country. we have seen the heavy assault on our post in benghazi bad took lives of those brave men. we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless. it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen, and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the dictator for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days
said today we had no actual intelligence that an attack on our post in benghazi was planned or imminent. two questions, first of all, they said benghazi. they had some warning for egypt. what does the actual intelligence mean? >> when you are in a threatened environment and the ambassador goes outside the compound, especially in benghazi, that has been a source of recruiting for al-qaeda for some time, extra caution should have been taken. one should argue at a dangerous place on 9/11 he doesn't go out at all. but the tragedy that four people are dead, it doesn't matter what the excuse is beforehand, there was a massive failure here. >> let's go back to my earlier point. why do you need a warning when you are in a place where there are extremists that don't like americans, and whatever purpose and he was heartless in libya, it was so obvious people didn't want us here. islamic extremists don't want us there, they want their law. >> unless you think everyone is fine. and you think things are going well in the middle east. but if your notion is that the war on terrorism is over and we've

. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birth of a new democracy, as libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship. chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. along with three of his colleagues, chris was killed in the city that he helped to save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story because chris stevens embodied the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers, he built bridges across oceans and cultures, and was deeply invested in the international cooperation that th
in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we receive from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries in the region, including egypt, tunisia, and yemen, have taken steps to secure our diplomatic facilities. and so have religious authorities around the world. but, understand that the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. there are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded. the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully. diplomacy can take the place of work. -- diplomacy can take the place of war. all of us have a stake in working for a greater opportunity for our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. we are serious about these ideals. we must speak

, with benghazi, with so many dictators, they were supporting them because it suit at that time the strategic interests and the economic interests. so the point for me was to deal with this and to be very cautious with wording. i was not buying from the very beginning this perception, oh, it's the arab spring, these are revolutions. i started by saying let us be cautiously optimistic. something is happening which is great. and what is great is what i call in the book and in the title the awakening. and the awakening is the awakening of the arab mind and the intellectual revolution with people understanding, yes, it's possible to get rid of dictators, it's possible to change the country. this is irreversible. that cannot be chaingd. and this is something which is a legacy, a shift which is very promising for the now and for the future. now to speak about revolutions that are achieved and i don't know, i still don't know. so i don't know today if what is happening in egypt is an unfinished or an unachieved revolution. i don't know what is happening with what is happening in tunisia that we are,
to libya and benghazi and that whole story. front page "new york times." we lost most of our intelligence assets because of this snafu, because of this mistake. the cia lost a lot of intelligence assets. we may be wiped out. now, again, president obama in the "60 minutes" last night could not get himself to say that this was premeditated, that this was a terrorist plot. he's still hanging on to the video story which, as you know, is a falsehood. i call it a lie. i believe ambassador, u.n. ambassador susan rice, should have been made to resign, or she should have taken the honorable route and resigned herself after misleading the entire country. but how can it be that obama himself cannot bring himself, like israel being our best ale, cannot bring himself to suggest that there was a complicated, a complicated and large terrorist plot around the killing of our ambassador and our agents in the embassy. >> well, larry, let me just go back to something the ambassador was saying. she's a diplomat, and has to be diplomatic. i'm not a diplomat. i don't have to be. let me say it really plainly and
in benghazi. and really, it was very apparent, larry, very early on that this was a pre-planned attack. the libyan president said it was a pre-planned attack. and you have the ambassador of the united nations for the united states coming on and misleading the public. basically we have sent a letter to ambassador rice to explain herself. >> you know, there's a story out today, i didn't know if you saw it, senator, but the story essentially was that the united states government within 24 hours knew it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. your thought on that. because that indicts rice and whomever else was in this cover-up even more. >> that's right. ambassador rice came on the sunday morning programs and said that, in fact, it was a spontaneous reaction of course to the video. and in no way was an expression of hostility toward america. and you have to say killing four american heroes, quite honestly, attacking our consulate, if that's not hostility toward america, i don't know what it is. so, no, i think it's pretty apparent that the administration must have known, had information, and
owe everything to the united states of america. he said benghazi would have been completely lost were it not for the crites of america and what it is that we did to bring about the kind of liberation they so desperately needed having been repressed for 42 years under gaddafi. he went on to say that as we look at libya, it's important to note that the tragic murder of ambassador stevens did not come from the people of libya, it came from individuals. a few individuals. he said the people of libya love the american people. and revere the american people. you know, i suspect that as we're talking about russian pntr, that the same thing exists in russia. because they're living with great oppression. they're living with what is little more than an authoritarian dictatorship with the crony capitalism and violations of human rights we're seeing but mr. speaker, the people of russia and i know many russians, we all do, they have great respect and love for us as well. so again, our goal is to bring to an end repressive policies and use, as my friend so eloquently said, the economic strength of
